Yellow Throated WarblerHey Pinellas County! It's Fall in Florida and Migration is on the Wing! Don't forget to Set a Place for Florida's Wild Bird Globe-trotting Guests!

Did you know that more than 300 bird species found in North America during the summer make their way to Central and South America or the Caribbean? Some wild birds cover distances of nearly 7,000 miles during their migration treks. Florida's beautiful parks, nature refuges and even backyard habitats here in Florida and across the country will host these winged visitors as the birds make their way to warmer spots in their winter homes.

Migration is a fascinating part of bird behavior. Besides the amount of daylight, it appears that age, sex, weather and the availability of food, water and shelter are the major factors in migratory behavior. To ensure Florida's beautiful wild birds remain healthy and safe during their migration trips, fill your backyard habitat feeders with plenty of nutritious seed and suet from Wild Birds Unlimited in Clearwater/Safety Harbor.While migration is still not completely understood, it appears that some birds orient themselves by the stars on clear nights while others seem to have a built-in magnetic compass. Some birds travel over large bodies of water, and wild birds commonly lose one-fourth to one-half of their body weight during such over-water migration. Yikes!

In order to survive their grueling trip, wild birds accumulate fat several weeks leading up to their migration. This physiological change helps the wild birds maintain their energy reserves during their migration trek through Florida and beyond its shores.Not only can we enjoy migrating wild birds as they pass through Pinellas County, but we can also play a role in their survival by providing food, water, habitat and/or shelter to help them conserve and replenish their energy supply during their long migratory journey. Foods that are high in fat, such as suet, Bark Butter and a seed blend with lots of sunflower seeds, help birds refuel their energy supply.

Visit Wild Birds Unlimited in Clearwater/Safety Harbor today for seed, feed, houses and supplies perfectly suited for Florida's migrating guests and our year-round wild bird residents!
